What follows is a statement from NALC President Rolando about our upcoming National Day of Action. In NH we be holding two events a rally on March 17th at noon at City Hall plaza in Manchester. As well as marching in the St Patricks Day parade also in Manchester on March 24th. I am hoping many in the Labor Community can join us!
On Sunday, March 24, Americans across the country will gather in support of Delivering for America’s mission to strengthen, not shrink, the United States Postal Service. Six days a week, our letter carriers work diligently to keep us connected and facilitate our business— while some in Congress, along with the postmaster general, seem intent on ending Saturday mail delivery and dismantling our vital universal network.
The plan to shrink the Postal Service and end six-day service is an attack on the future of this great institution, on the customers who need it, and on the employees who support it. Many Americans—small-business owners, senior citizens, rural residents and veterans—would suffer if the strength and reach of our Postal Service is compromised.
Make your voice heard by joining a nearby Delivering for America rally to preserve six-day delivery on March 24. We need to send a clear message to Congress: Don’t dismantle our Postal Service!
